Few photos, one with the 18, one the 35, one the 60. 100% crops as well. Great camera, but I had some focus issues with the camera - it would, at times, just not lock on to what I wanted to focus on. Last shot shows the dynamic range - from the deep shadow of the footwells to the bright highlights in the clouds. All jpegs, all straight out of the camera, no adjustments AT ALL. (which is worthy of note - perfect exposure, white balance and colour, as far as I'm concerned...)

X-P1, Velvia mode, ISO 200, cropped in LR3 with minimal sharpening applied

Sample 1:




Sample 1 detail crop:




Sample 2:




Sample 2 detail crop:



I must say that I am quite pleased with the dynamic range - especially for using the higher contrast Velvia simulation. Both shots taken in the late afternoon sunlight, yet the deep shadow areas still hold detail.

Here's a random shot that I worked over in Photoshop using Topaz. ISO 640 at 1/10 sec. (handheld).

My grandfather's 88th birthday dinner, then one of my friend's daughter mugging for the camera. All in-camera JPGs, I upposed the contrast and clarity of the last. In-camera B&W still doesn't hold a candle to good Silver Efex Pro work, but it's not terrible.

AF missed more than a few but the 35/1.4 remains absolutely amazing - and it's nice to be able to flip a switch to macro for shots like the last.

I especially like your friend's daughter hamming it up. Adorable!

How'd you find the AF or did you MF? How did you find the 18mm 2.0? Been considering adding it to my kit.

Here are three from the 35/1.4 lens, two of which are using the macro function. I'm very pleased with the camera and lens on the whole, but there are some relatively minor things I hope are addressed in firmware upgrades. I hope the aperture chattering is fixed and that, in doing so, I will actually be able to use the EVF to focus at the aperture I've set on the lens (darned difficult to determine focus / depth of field otherwise). Even with power save on, the AF speed doesnt bother me though.

Images are jpegs slightly edited in capture one pro 6. It was my first time using that program, which appears to be quite nice. I think I will stick to lightroom though, since I'm used to it and I can use silver efex in lightroom.

The AF worked fine. Definitely not as peppy as a D700, but as I wrote in your "Achilles' heel" thread, I wasn't expecting dSLR-level AF performance, only Contax G2-level & that expectation has been met. I have shrunk down the AF area ("virtual RF patch") & paid close attention to where I aim that area. I didn't use true MF at all for this show (so far, I've only tried that in Macro mode), though I did try using the AF via the AE-L/AF-L button in M mode a couple times (even slower, but you get a distance readout).

The 18/2 is also good enough for me, a little reminiscent of the Cosina 28/1.9 Ultron in LTM, i.e., lower contrast wide open than Leica ASPH glass, but still delivers (more like pre-ASPH Leica).

Had my first proper chance to test out the 60mm today - seems like a very good lens to me. These are straight out of camera Jpegs at 1600 ISO.

A couple more examples from a show. 18/2 @ f/2, ISO 3200, in-camera JPGs w/standard "Provia" setting & minimum noise reduction (no NR in post):





For comparison purposes, here are 2 similar shots taken w/a D700 + 28/1.4 AF-D @ f/2, ISO 3200, raw files processed in Capture One & w/some noise reduction done in post via Noise Ninja:

I was waiting for the girls to be under the blooming tree but I shot instinctively when I saw the boys turning their heads to look at them.

Spyro: Really nice set.

JHutchins: You post some good photos! However, I see some extremely heavy compression going on, the images look really pixelated, that takes a bit away from them for me.

Walked around the French Quarter a little today and experimented with film simulation bracketing. These are: Standard, Pro-Negative Standard, and Monochrome with Y filter. 35mm lens.







The link to the set is http://www.flickr.com/photos/brachal...th/6931311566/
There are a few more samples there.

ERIC BOUVET (VII agency) has been professing love for the X-pro 1 lately. i am sure if you keep an eye on what he is up to you will find some beautiful work from an X-pro 1. although i am not sure it has much to do with the camera.

The X100 has been out for a year, give the XPro time to catch up.

For my part, I'm having a hard time seeing in 28/50 after a year of 35-only. 28 feels so much wider and 53 so much narrower. I'll adapt.

A few photos from the yard. Shame there aren't really any flowers out yet.

Taken with the x-pro 1 and my 100mm smc macro tak adapted with a kipon adapter. Side note - if anybody knows of an adapter that will work with a 50/4 smc macro tak, please pm me. The kipon does -not- work with it.

Thanks for posting more 18/2 examples. My 18/2,arrives in a day or so. Your work is an inspiration (actually it has been for years).

A friend asked me to photograph a group of visiting monks as they created a sand mandala at the museum where she interns - I'm not overjoyed with what I got (I was in the back of the audience for the initial ceremony and the monks didn't seem like they were in a mood to be posed beforehand) but it's serviceable for the museum to document things, I guess. A lot more satisfied once the creation of the mandala started and I could get in closer to shoot them working.

set of 13:
